Washington supreme court hears arguments on Olympia co-op’s boycott of Israeli goods

The Washington State Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Tuesday in the case against sixteen current and former members of the Olympia Food Co-op board of directors. The plaintiffs say the board exceeded its authority by passing a resolution to boycott Israeli goods five years ago.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs — five former members of the co-op, which has 22,000 members — argued against both the 2010 decision to boycott Israeli goods and against a Washington State law that saw their previous attempts to stop the boycott defeated in lower courts.
